UX UI Design Fundamentals with Generative AI
Digitalisation is changing the way we interact with products and platforms. As a result, there is a high demand for UX UI designers who are responsible for creating user-centered designs. This six-week course offers a comprehensive introduction to the field of UI/UX design, providing participants with the foundational skills and hands-on experience needed to succeed in this field.
Through a combination of structured learning and hands-on projects using Figma, participants will develop a strong understanding of design concepts and technical skills that can be applied in their future careers as UX UI designers. This course is suitable for those who are new to the field or looking to refresh their knowledge of design principles and techniques.
Upon completing this course, participants will be able to:
Understand the role and responsibilities of a UX UI designer, including the tools and processes used in the industry
